Lightroom: Image path updating needs to be much better

From the original post:

4) improved updating of directory paths - my catalog has references to tons of files on the g: drive (g:/photos/tim) - but the new catalog is on the f: drive (f:/tim) - Lightroom is having difficulty locating files from more than one directory, even though the directory hierarchy is the same - meaning that I have to do a 'find missing file' independently for every date in my catalog


I feel a bit like I'm beating a dead horse on this one - I'm hoping that this has been at least partially addressed in 5.3, since this seems to be an area of some pain for many other users

If dir structure is the same, you should be able to relocate root and be done - not working like that for you?
